Don't miss dining pleasures
There's a few places you need eat at to get the complete Islamorada experience.
First, you really haven't lived the Islamorada lifestyle unless you have experienced Manny and Isa's Key Lime Pie. Here's the classic Keys lunch: go to Manny and Isa's, order a Cuban sandwich, a pitcher of iced tea, and the Key Lime Pie for dessert. Yum.
Next, go to the Islamorada Fish Company. Enjoy bay-front dining, fish in a basket style (best for lunch). When you are finished eating (or waiting for your table) stroll through the Worldwide Sportsman. Lots of great t-shirts, gifts, clothes, and fishing equipment-a-plenty.
Wanna go to a real Keys-style restaurant? Don't miss the Island Grill. I like this place for dinner. All the choices on the menu are pretty good and the atmosphere is classic Keys all the way. The food is excellent.
If you want something more elegant, go to Pierre's. Ask for a table on the balcony and time your reservation for the sunset. You will be overlooking Florida Bay. This is the sister restaurant to Morada Bay which is a little less formal (nothing is actually formal in the Keys... shorts and t-shirt is acceptable in any restaurant).
